A new video has been uncovered. One where Chris Moody of CNN did some digging. If you thought Donald Trump was an anti-establishment Conservative, it’s important that you watch this. This isn’t a mere “flip-flop”. This shows a consistent and enthusiastic support for Democrats, the Clintons and a long-running disdain for Republicans and Conservatives. Even if you like him, you need to know these things.
“In many cases, I probably identify more as a Democrat,” Donald Trump told CNN in 2004. Watch the video, because It gets worse…
In the same interview, he said: “It just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans.”
Then in 2007 Donald Trump said, “Hillary’s always surrounded herself with very good people. I think Hillary would do a good job,” as he praised her ability to negotiate and ultimately handle a deal with Iran. It’s also important to note that he praised Hillary, while simultaneously trashing Condoleezza Rice as unqualified and nothing more than a joke.
Compare that to a quote 8 years later, Donald Trump: “Hillary Clinton was the worst Secretary of State in the history of the United States. …There wasn’t one good thing that came out of the administration or her being Secretary of State.” That’s from July 9, 2015.
The change is so shocking, who knows what to do with it? Is he simply bashing Hillary because she is now running against him? Or was he just so wrong in his prediction? Because he also donated six figures to the Clinton Foundation (both for her as a senator and later as she campaigned on a national platform).
Now, I know Donald Trump says all the right things when he speaks—but that is simply a recent occurrence.
Everyone is allowed to change their mind, sure. However, Donald Trump does it more than anyone in the history of politics ever (switching his party five times alone since Reagan). But the funny thing here is that even with all of his “business experience,” when asked to rationalize his EMPHATIC support for Democrats (and particularly their great job on the economy), Trump doesn’t have a valid answer. He just loved Democrats, but was completely thoughtless in his response. Much like his responses today. A lot of bluster, not a lot of justification.
That’s where a “flash of genius” is required. He needs to explain his epiphany, the moment where he realized that he was wrong. Because anyone who makes a 180 on their fundamental principles has one. What is Donald Trump’s? That is the question that he MUST answer.
Also, the hair.
